When I was working on Mark of the Fallen, I was looking for a way to connect Celeste’s story to The First to Fall, to solidify the fact that there was always a link between Eli and the Doc long before they ever met. What I came up with was a short epilogue that I ended up cutting in the final edit, but I still feel like its an important little piece to the story. So, rather than just discard it, I decided to post it. This happens after the events of Mark of the Fallen, but immediately before The First to Fall. Enjoy !
New Orleans- Ten Years later
She had been dressed as one of the dancers, her sheer pants slit from ankle to thigh on each leg, belled anklets clasped at the bottoms. She felt the mask being tugged and suddenly the haze of the mask was removed and the colors came to life. Deep reds, golds and bronze cast an autumnal and expensive glow across the room, the fur on the floor was dark mink, and her clothing was next to nothing. She looked down at herself, her thick hair hanging over her shoulder in a thick bejewel braid that hung to her waist.
His voice came from somewhere behind one of the many curtains draped from the ceiling. Her breath caught as one of the rich satin curtains moved back, exposing a figure in the shadows laying in the center of a circular bed. She took a step forward, pulled by some unseen force, closer to the shadowy figure.
“I am waiting for you, Eli,” She said with a voice that was surprisingly husky. She spoke in a dead language, something older than man, yet he understood her perfectly. She traced the birthmark on his chest with her finger, the raised symbol that he had yet to understand. Around her neck, she wore the same symbol emblazoned in platinum on a delicate silver chain.
“I am waiting. Come find me.” She whispered , her mouth capturing his in a blazing kiss that made his body explode from the sheer want.
He sat up with a start, his body hot and wet, his sheets sticking to his hips. He pulled the covers back and looked at his naked body and groaned. Not again.
This had been happening more and more frequently over the last few weeks and frankly he was sick of it. Sure he enjoyed the dreams of the gorgeous stranger, but this, this was down right embarrassing.

“Karim,” she panted, not really knowing what to do or say.
He held her face, his thumb stroking her bottom lip. He closed his eyes and took a deep breath, collecting himself before he was able to speak.
“You have no idea how much I want you. I’ve always wanted you. Whenever I close my eyes I see your face, I smell your scent. I see you and all I want to do is bury myself inside of you. I wake up, my body on fire, aching to be inside of you. I remember everything about you: your voice, your laugh, your taste stays on my tongue, and the feel of your skin is burned into my memory. There is an ache in my chest whenever I see you and it kills me, rips my fucking heart apart knowing that my stupid, selfish childish actions caused you so much pain. I know that I’ll never be good enough for you. But when I’m near you, hell when I smell you I just… shit, I want you so much I can’t fucking breathe. Do you know how much it hurts to be so close to you and not be allowed to fucking have you? It’s torture. Being around you …it’s fucking torture. “
” Just… stop talking. ” She whispered before pressing herself against him, her mouth moving over his, her hands sinking into his hair.
I Loved It-
When I started reading the book, I could not believe how I was sucked into it. Eli is so sexy, The heat between the characters is so hot. I finished the book in a couple of days. I also ordered books for my sisters for Christmas. If you love supernatural and love stories, this is the book. What better place for love and supernatural than New Orleans.
Tracey Paul- 5 Stars
An absolutely amazing book for any lover of theology, mythology and a lot of sexy action. It reminds me a lot of Anne Rice in the eroticism of the authors prose. The second I read the last page I went online to order the next book only to find out that it isn’t out yet. Which makes me a sad panda
Tammi- 5 stars-
